The main event for the UFC’s return to Sacramento has been set, as Paige VanZant takes on Michelle Waterson.
Set for December 17 from the Golden 1 Center, the bout was confirmed by UFC president Dana White Wednesday on “UFC Tonight.” It joins a previously announced fight between Sage Northcutt and Mickey Gall.
VanZant (7-2) rebounded from a loss to Rose Namajunas by stopping Bec Rawlings in August. She also was crowned runner-up on “Dancing with the Stars” earlier this year.
Waterson (13-4) is a former Invicta FC atomweight champion who has fought just once since debuting, besting Angela Magana.
